Iran Newspaper front pages

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Sunday and picked headlines from 20 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

Newspapers on Sunday continued covering the medals won by Iranian athletes in Olympic games, particularly the Gold one bagged by Hassan Yazdani in freestyle wrestling.

They also covered the ongoing debates and remarks about Russia’s use of Iranian airbase, and the reaction of Iranian Defence Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan.

The controversy over the Iranian Oil Ministry’s contracts has also taken the Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh to the Parliament, where they should discuss the contracts and revise them if necessary.
